"blindsided by contact with reality"

Recommended Posts

Well, yes.  As the BBC reported:

Leaders of the HS2 rail project have been "blindsided by contact with reality", a report by MPs has found.

The Public Accounts Committee accused HS2 Ltd and the Department for Transport (DfT) of lacking transparency [oh, the irony] and undermining public confidence.

If I knew what they meant, I might agree (or not).

Can someone translate that into English for me please?

I think posh people live in a different world to i or you.. So they are ideally suited to running large projects..as they will carry on regardless..as the people who have the temerity to complain! Are oiks! And have no relevance?

We used to play buzzword bingo when I worked in Marketing.  But this is from a game at another level altogether.

To be fair to most career politicians , I would imagine most of them are contantantly blindsided by contact with reality .

Reality is something of a stranger to most of them ! :)

Me too (although not in marketing, naturally :D).  The difficulty was not shouting 'House!' when you got it.

Yep, I've been in meetings trying very hard not to laugh. Failing occasionally.

Reality is best ignored, if it doesn't suit your beliefs. It's less stressful that way.

So can we impute that the politicians who look least stressed are most detactched from reality???

That's a definite maybe...and the embryonic beginnings of my hypothesis. 

I may write a thesis on it. :geek:
